Sydney CBD City
The Sydney central business district (also Sydney CBD, and often referred to simply as “the Town” or “the City”) is the main commercial centre of Sydney, the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. It extends southwards for about 3 km (2 mi) from Sydney Cove, the point of first European settlement in which the Sydney region was initially established. Due to its pivotal role in Australia’s early history, it is one of the oldest established areas in the country.
The Sydney CBD is Australia’s main financial and economic centre, as well as a leading hub of economic activity for the Asia-Pacific region. Culturally, the city centre is Sydney’s focal point for nightlife and entertainment. It is also home to some of the city’s most significant buildings and structures.
